have taped prom tickets to notebook pages and written their
memories of the evening along with pictures and other
mementos. We arrange photos into albums and perhaps
label them with dates and other information.
Scrapbooking as we now know it got its official start in
1980 by the Christensen family in Utah. These pioneers went
on to launch the hugely successful company Keeping
Memories Alive. It's been almost 35 years, but the
scrapbook industry continues to grow at an exponential rate.
And these past four years have really seen a growth spurt!
In the last several years, scrapbooking has taken on a
new life. No longer are these albums simply photos and
labels or a couple of prom tickets taped to a page. Now
they are elaborately styled memory books with fancy
embellishments and features. Some people consider
scrapbooking an art form, and when you look at some of
these pages, you might just agree.
